' Skilled Training-has it a future ? '
A round-table discussion between W. M. W. Thomas , F. Audley , C. Dukes , and Richard Coppock
Sir Charles Mander in the chair
This evening Sir Charles Mander occupies the chair at a discussion between four men specially qualified to talk about the subject of skilled training. The discussion will probably touch on the decline of the apprenticeship system, the difficulty of providing skilled training in the modern factory, and the possibility of new employment schemes.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
